Czech Cup - 2nd Round
SK Prostějov 1 Sigma Olomouc 4
When I lived in Olomouc in 2000, and for a few months in 2002, I went to as many Sigma games as possible (in the Czech Republic, and in Europe). However, ever since I moved to Prostějov my interest in Sigma has been very low. Just to feel like old times, I went to the Czech Cup game on Wednesday and was in the Sigma end. It was a good opportunity to cheer against the 3rd tier SK.
Since Olomouc is only around 15km down the road about 300 Sigma supporters showed up, which was many more than I had seen in the past. Over the last 10 years I have seen Sigma play cup matches at Uničov, Hranice, Konice, Třínec, and Líšen. For each game only a few dozen Sigma fans showed up, with the lowest being at Třínec (8). On Wednesday, it was a different story, but overall the Sigma fans were quiet. Not as quiet as the Prostějov fans though.
Almost 4,000 people were at the game, and almost no noise was generated from the home support. There was a small group of younger fans who chanted and had drums, but that was it. With that being said, it is not like SK gave the home fans anything to cheer about. They were never really in the game, even when it was 1-1, we all knew Sigma would come back to win. Always good to see Franchise FC lose.
